The Sports Capital Programme aims to foster an integrated and planned approach to developing sports and physical recreation facilities throughout the country. In particular, its objectives are to:

  • assist voluntary and community organisations, national governing bodies (NGBs) of sport, local authorities and Education and Training Boards and schools to develop high quality, safe, well-designed, sustainable facilities in appropriate locations and to provide appropriate equipment to help maximise participation in sport and physical recreation
  • prioritise the needs of disadvantaged areas and groups (such as people with disabilities) in the provision of sports facilities
  • encourage the sharing of sports facilities by clubs, community organisations and national governing bodies of sport.
